Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $455,598)

The goal of this study is to conduct a formative evaluation and evaluability assessment of the survivor care programs developed by LOVE146 for domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) victims in Connecticut. Researchers, with the support of the program and an advisory board, will develop program logic models, implementation guides and fidelity measurement tools, and will analyze five years of program data to document service delivery profiles. Additionally, the project will address a key evaluation barrier: feasible research protocols for involving this vulnerable population. In Year 2 of the study, the team will pilot the developed protocols and measures using online surveys of a sample of survivors (N=25).
Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law, and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR 200.210(a)(14). CA/NCF
